Bolting Training

HYTORC offers various levels of training from free on-site and web-based training to OSHA-certified and ASME-approved bolting courses. Well trained tool operators are not only safer, but have also been proven to get the job done faster and more accurately than an untrained or poorly trained counterpart. Many companies are now requiring certain levels of training for tool operators before they are permitted to work on the job. Whether it’s a simple on-site training on safe and proper tool handling or a comprehensive classroom training, HYTORC is your partner for improving productivity.
